I remember the dearly departed BUFC fanzine FBYF once described Gateshead as like "an irritating turd you can't seem to flush down the toilet" as they used to yoyo up and down

Anybody remember us beating Altrincham to progress to the FA Trophy final at Wembley or was that just my poor memory?
I remember this season well as I was 12 and had just started to attend York Street and it gave me the impression this club would get to Wembley most season's ! (Slightly naïve)
As for the Altrincham game we were packed like sardines into the York Street end (no townenders in those days). As with all big games trouble arrived and Arthur Mann prompted by the police came over to tell whoever was throwing golf balls to pack it in. Obviously the biggest moment was when Bob Lee rose at the far post and thumped the header in the back of the net. The ground erupted : Boston were off to the twin towers of Wembley !

Shocked by this decision, won their last 2 home games and BPA away on a Monday night in winter is never an easy fixture to pick up points.  I wonder if Billy Heath is interested, though he normally works with bigger budgets.

I wouldn't worry , not since since the days of Jon "Incremental Increase" Sotnick could we "afford" to sign League 1 centre forwards  ::)

So in the long run the Malkinsons and the council have played a big part in keeping us alive and at York Street.
Which they are still playing a big part, the Malkinsons for extending our lease, and the council for donating the land which the stadium will be built on and also backing the Quadrant development.
[/quote]

The land which the stadium is on is owned by Holy Trinity church, Spilsby Road  and is on a long term lease at minimal rent.

The Quadrant development plans have been given a huge boost - by church officials. A 13-acre site off the A16 - where Boston United are hoping to build their new stadium and ‘community hub’ - is owned by the Parochial Church Council (PCC) of the Holy Trinity Skirbeck Church, which has held the land in trust for the Diocese of Lincoln for 60 years. And church officials say they are happy to lease land to developers Chestnut Homes, to allow the project to move forward - if planning permission is granted. Speaking on behalf of the PCC, the Rev Simon Dowson said: “We are pleased that we are in a position to lease the land which will help this exciting project to go ahead. “We hope that the project will be of great benefit to the town of Boston.”

I wouldn't worry , with Spennymoor  having the equivalent of  Hoggs Buses  ;) run their team and supporters coach (2 breakdown in the last 5 days) I'm quite confident they'll get a hat trick and won't make it .

Factors in our favour before game: Southport scored 3 goals in 6 games pre-season and BUSA paid for overnight stay for better preparation !
Can we reduce  the BUSA budget  for the Blyth trip ? Cos the way I feel right now I'd make them go camping

Just think Dave how many goals we would have conceded without our "better preparation".  :)
If we cancelled the Blyth overnighter , would the £1k as a signing on fee tempt Rollins to sign,?

Yes I suppose it could have been worse, but as for Rollins  if a player doesn't want to play for us then they can go .He certainly wanted to play for us when he played for Armthorpe.  The fact he didn't turn up for the Curzon game was poor.  (oh yes, he was injured )  :-\

Didn't make the game but Paul Cox seemed impressed :

The Barrow Boss gave us his thoughts following the 1-1 draw away at Boston United in our third pre-season friendly.

 

“I picked this game deliberately, knowing their managers mindset and we got everything out of it that I wanted.

It was a really good game, Boston will be up at the top of the Conference North with some good players, some of whom should be playing in the conference and even the football league.

It was a high tempo, physical game, with lots of first balls and second balls to be won and it asked questions of us.

There is also lots of things we have learnt from it, lots of positives things.
